We shouldn't call $700 a month for a studio apartment affordable as long as there are people standing in front of McDonalds with "Fight For 15" signs. The truth is that if someone works 40 hours a week at $15/hour, then $700 would be about 1/3 of the take-home amount of the paycheck.
I've never been a fan of the fight for 15 movement, but something has to give. The numbers don't lie. You can't have it both ways, and so I'm beginning to believe that maybe these people should be out there protesting and the people who think this is affordable housing should be listening to them.
My sister's family visited NYC this past Christmas with plans of using Uber, but they used taxi cabs instead. If Uber and taxi's can coexist in NYC, then why can't they in Rochester?
I'm very dissatisfied with our state politicians who say that they want ride-sharing and think that's good enough. To me it's completely unacceptable. Please just hurry up and do your jobs. I need to know one way or another. Give me a date when Uber is going to be here and if it's not happening, then that's information I need to know so I can move on.
My want to purchase a specific car with plans to use it to drive for Uber. I'm ready to buy the car today, and so I need to know today.
I agree that Warren will most likely beat both Rachel and Sheppard. I had previously thought that Rachel would choose to support Jim Sheppard in hopes of getting a job in his administration. Maybe she'll still do this.

Just thinking about this Friday.
Doesn't Whole Foods think that the Brighton location is too close to the Pittsford Wegmans? The customer reviews on the internet indicate that Wegmans beats Whole Foods. How could Whole Foods not care about being so close to Wegmans? There's more to this story.
Obama hasn't exactly been our best role model for how to deal with fake news. The lesson is that if you publicly mock the person who's been using fake news against you, then that person might decide to run for president and win.
What needs to be off the table is any presumption that a developer will be getting huge tax breaks. We need to forget about doling out subsidies to build expensive high-rises with over-priced views.
Most of us can agree that four to six story mid-rises could be win-win.
It's great that there's enough parking for the annual Fourth-of-July celebration. But, let's be realistic. We need property tax revenue and economic development for the port more than guaranteed free parking on one day of the year.
